Top 10 China silicon wafer manufacturers

Top 10 China Silicon Wafer Manufacturers in China

Silicon wafers are the most important basic raw material for industries such as semiconductor chip manufacturing and photovoltaics. Silicon wafers have extremely high industry barriers due to their ultra-high purity requirements.

The world is dominated by five major semiconductor manufacturers (Shin-Etsu, SUMCO, Siltronic, SK Siltron, and GlobalWafers), but in recent years, mainland China has also been researching and advancing in semiconductor wafer manufacturing processes.
